Currently out of work, fandom- and wedding-obsessed 23 year old woman. Expect to see lots of posts about wedding, job-hunting, moving across the country (MI to NY) and fandom!

Yay, Billy!

Billy found out today that he was accepted to the New York Film Academy's master's program for Screen Acting.

Now, I'm of two minds about this. On the one hand, it's great for him. He really wanted to get in, it'll get him out of the apartment (he doesn't go far unless I'm dragging him with me), and hopefully he'll qualify for student loans that will help defray a lot of our living costs.

On the other hand, as part of the program he's required to spend his second year taking classes in California. He's super excited about this, because who wouldn't want to be studying at Universal Studios? But this will mean either I have to pick up and follow him out to California (DO NOT WANT, for multiple reasons, some superficial [I <3 NY] and some practical [I've already made one cross-country move; I don't want to make another]), or I live on my own for a year.

I really, really don't want to be away from my husband ('cause that's what he will be in THREE MONTHS OMFG) on our first wedding anniversary :-(

Also? I've honestly never lived completely on my own. I know, it's kind of ridiculous, but it's true. I went from my parents', to the dorm (even when I had a room of my own, I spent the majority of my time - awake and asleep - at Billy's dorm or apartment), to an apartment with Billy. I don't know if I know how to function on my own!

In completely unrelated news: my dad called me today to say he's sending my mom to visit me for a few days after Thanksgiving, lol. She's been pretty depressed lately, so as a combined birthday/Christmas gift, he's shipping her off to New York, with the request that I take her to Rockefeller Center, I'm assuming so she can see the Christmas tree, since that keeps coming up in conversations with my dad. Considering I work at Rockefeller Center, and am thus becoming far too acquainted with it, I told him it wouldn't be a problem.

Still waiting to hear back on whether or not I'm getting my real job. The e-mail from last Tuesday said the hiring woman would know "by next week" and tomorrow is the end of that week. It'd be awesome to know tomorrow so I can a) change my schedule at Banana Republic/give my two weeks' notice and b) arrange my start date so it wouldn't interfere with Mom's visit.

And now I'm really hungry. Time to rustle up some food.
  • It sounds like a day of mixed emotions and news. I hope whatever you decide with Billy is a solution that works out in the end. :)
